It’s official– At&T will be offering the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket 4G come December 4th. In addition, the phone will (supposedly) be offered in white. But only time will tell. As soon as the announcement is made, we will keep you updated. As for the device itself, you can pick it up from Amazon Wireless today for $189.99 with a new contract or upgrade, and $589.99 unsubsidized here. Furthermore, here are some of the key features for the device:

  • 3G/4G/4G LTE connectivity
  • Android 2.3 OS
  • 1.5 GHz dual-core processor
  • 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen
  • 16 GB memory
  • 8-MP camera + Full HD 1080p video capture
  • GPS navigation
  • Wireless-N Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • Personal/corporate e-mail


As usual, the device will come loaded with Touchwiz in addition to Gingerbread. Therefore, along with personal preference, that feature can either be a good or bad thing. Furthermore, the Galaxy S II Skyrocket looks to be one of (if not) the best phone on the market today. That is if you’re not counting the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. However, that device is yet to make its debut in the U.S. and is furthermore rumored to be a Verizon exclusive for at least a small amount of time. Along with its 4G speeds and dual-core 1.5ghz processor, you surely won’t go wrong with this device at just $189.99/$589.99. However, as we have been saying for a few months now, if you can wait, you should probably take another look at the Galaxy Nexus with Ice Cream Sandwich.
